WHAT'S NEW AT TORRANCE MEMORIAL HEALTH SYSTEM
Torrance Memorial Health System is excited to announce the implementation
of the Health Information Exchange or HIE.
HIE is a cutting edge, secure electronic platform that allows Torrance
Memorial doctors to share patient clinical data with one another to enhance
your medical care.
HIE will contain electronic records from your primary care or specialist
office as well as your records from Torrance Memorial Medical Center.
That means if you’re hospitalized, then Medical Center staff can
easily access your prescription drug information, allergies and other
key information from your doctor’s office records. After discharge,
your primary care doctors and specialists can easily access your records
from Torrance Memorial Medical Center to ensure you get the follow up
medical care you need.
As a result of sharing clinical data, you’ll receive safer, more
efficient and effective care from all of your doctors. As of this writing,
Torrance Memorial Medical Center and more than 100 physicians are connected
to the HIE and are currently sharing clinical data. Our goal is to connect
all Torrance Memorial Health System physicians to the HIE by the end of 2016.
